About the property

Lodge, 7 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

Perched atop a peaceful, forested ridge, Panorama Lodge is a comfortable, 7 bedroom log home with breathtaking views of Mt. Hood and the Hood River Valley. Look out to a verdant valley of pear, apple and cherry orchards.

Great place for retreats, sport teams, and reunions. Our lodge is outfitted for flexibility. We can sleep 18. A favorite lodging option for reunions, non-profit groups, bicycle teams. Ask for a floor plan.

Relax on our full-length deck where vibrant flowers frame every vista. Enjoy the serenade of birds, quail and wild turkeys. You'll enjoy the call of owls at night. Gather on our large flower lined deck with Mt. Hood at your feet. Play bocce ball on our newly completed court. Hike or bike some awesome nearby trails with great views.

Yet we're less than four miles from Hood River where shops, world-class restaurants, brew pubs, art galleries and theatre await.

IMPORTANT: WE ARE NOT A WEDDING VENUE! Our site is not suitable to host weddings! We are in a great neighborhood of families on 3 to 5 acre parcels. Loud noise carries throughout this area. Be considerate of our neighbors. Please, no outdoor music or other noisy outdoor activities past 10 pm. Thank you

Mountain bike and hiking trails are just up the road and windsurfing and kite sailing are only three miles away. Ask about trails, must-see places and view spots. Lots of local information.

The entry has a set of stairs, as well as a paved entry ramp.


We are just 33 miles to Mt. Hood Meadows. We offer DISCOUNTED LIFT TICKETS for Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort. Our tickets will be $59 this year if purchased here! That is a $30 savings over the current Mt. Hood Meadows advertised regular price. Also, Meadows is offering a three day pass for just $99 when you stay at our lodge. Ask for details.


ASK ABOUT PETS! Pets must be well-behaved. No aggressive dogs! No constant barkers or cat chasers. Limit to no more than three pets. Pets must not be left unattended. We discourage 'furniture setters'. (Furniture covers available). Thank you.

About Linda Kremin

We hike or ride bike whenever we get a chance. Landscaping and gardening occupy a lot of our time. We have over 50 organic blueberry plants and LOTS of strawberries. Whenever we get more time off, we explore other parts of Oregon & Washington. We have always loved the northwest.

Linda Kremin purchased this lodge in 1976

Why Linda Kremin chose Hood River

We have lived in the Gorge most of our lives. The lodge location has so much to offer . . . the view is awesome, there are two great hiking trails within one or two miles, if we need something we are just 3.5 miles from town, less ambient light makes for a great place to observe the stars at night, plus the peace and quiet can't be beat. The Columbia Gorge is rich with wildlife, we presently have a doe & two fawns and a large herd of turkeys that visit daily. Natural beauty abounds, go hiking, camping, kayaking, skiing, exploring - all types of adventure. We bought our property in '76 and built a large log home taking full advantage of our mountain view. We have been offering our lodge to guests for over 28 years. We love this area and enjoy helping our guests locate the many treasures we have found in the gorge.

What makes this lodge unique

Peace and Quiet. People come from all over for the silence, the nearby trails, the superb mountain view, the awesome night sky and a variety of wildlife. We have many wild turkeys out the kitchen window each morning. And it is not unusual to see a deer and fawn ambling through. We feel pretty lucky.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful place to spend a vacation with friends! We all work hard and have rented this lodge three times just to come to the gorge for wind-surfing, hiking and bicycling.

Nice, large house for a group!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was a great and our group wants to return in the summer when the outside deck could be utilized.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your note. Spring thru Fall are definitely more fun on the large deck. Many guests spread sleeping bags or hammocks for great views of the mountain under moonlight during warmer times. However, the gas fire-pit is always there on the covered end of the deck to make outdoor a little more enjoyable even in the winter. We would love to welcome you back.

Family Chirstmas and 50th Wedding Anniversary

  • 4 of 5

The lodge met all of our requirements - we had plenty of room for everyone and plenty of room for 5 young kids to play. The beds were very good, however the sofas need some updating/cushions. We would have had an outstanding time but the weather did not cooperate. We had only one 4 wheel drive vehicle of the 4 and could not make it up to the lodge to unload or load. Linda was very helpfull in shuttling us from our cars on the road up to the lodge. There was little flexibility in activities since we were basically tied to the lodge for the 3 days. Weather was the main issue and not the lodge itself.

Owner's Response: Your family hit a rather difficult cold snap for December. Our website suggests the winter weather can be sunny and warm but can also shift to difficult driving conditions. AWD vehicles should always be rented during winter months in the Northwest. If you get a chance to return, let me know in advance and I can arrange a discount so you can experience the thrill of of warmer weather in the Northwest.

Eleven of my family spent a most memorable Thanksgiving at Panorama Lodge.

  • 5 of 5

This lodge was so perfect for a family...many rooms and a wonderfully stocked kitchen for our Thanksgiving meal. We spent much time in the cozy living and dining area playing games and

enjoying the awesome view of Mt. Hood and the orchards below. The decks were equally cozy

with an outdoor fire to enjoy. We are outdoor people and enjoyed the many walks around and

found it a great location to go on other hikes.

The many artifacts in the spacious living area was so interesting,

The bathrooms and bedrooms were well eqipped and Linda the owner was very accommodating and appreciated her being available for questions.

This is a perfect retreat!!

Owner's Response: I enjoyed meeting JoAnne and her family. It is fun to share our Lodge with people who are so ready for the adventures this area has to offer. We even discovered a Danish connection. Great group. I sure hope you can return some day. Maybe next October for that Birthday Celebration!

Second stay just as enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

We held our family reunion here for the second year in a row and found it just as charming and comfortable as last year! There were 14 adults, three toddlers and an 8 week old and we used every bit of the space. The large tables and deck seating and the large well-equipped kitchen made for ease of meal preparation for the dinner teams. There are many wonderful hikes within a reasonable drive of Panorama Lodge and in Hood River we had two playgrounds for the toddler outings. Rosauer's and Safeway are great grocery stores not too far away.

Owner's Response: The lodge is most content when it can hear the laughter of friends within. I am pleased we could host this family.

Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed @ Panorama Lodge for several nights. There were 12 of us couples from our church who are friends & also on an planning committee. The lodge is quaint, & full of charm. There was more than enough room for all our needs. The kitchen was great, living room wonderfully large. We played card games alot & the table was a great size for 12. The view is absolutely incredable. It's amazing. We didn"t want to leave because the weather was perfect for sitting on the spacious deck, enjoying humming birds & Mt. Hood. There is plenty of sleeping room but going into this you must know there are only 4 bathrooms. So there is sharing. We knew that before hand so it was fine. We worked around it. The view makes up for it. The owner Linda lives next door & is great if you need her but other than that you don"t know shes there. Wonderful stay

Great spot for small family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had thirteen adults and 3 toddlers here for five nights. It was an ideal floor plan for our group, with plenty of beds, a room on the main floor for the oldest group member so she didn't have to climb stairs up or down.

Recommendation: air conditioning on the lowest level. It was very hot, even with portable fans.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing Panorama Lodge. The sound of laughter here is one of the Lodges favorite summer sounds. I have already procured one more AC unit for lower level and should have a shade sail for the deck within the week. I'm afraid that blistering summer days will certainly be back. I hope you can return next year.
